Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Powerful 30 mm guns in gun pods
  • Excellent top speed at sea-Level
  • Access to Maverick air-to-ground missiles (RB 75)
  • Access to RB24J (AIM-9J equivalent performance)
  • Has reverse thrust

Cons:

  • CAS options available do not allow bringing more than one type of missile, rocket, or bomb
  • Bleeds energy quickly with tight turns
  • Countermeasures restrict maximum allowed suspended armaments
  • Bomb payload consists of small individual 120 kg bombs
  • 30 mm Akan gun pods have relatively low fire rate compared to the presence of Vulcan cannons.
  • No radar missiles available
  • Reverse thrust is only usable on ground
  • Afterburner drains fuel quickly (1:10 ratio)

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
